APHA registry

In search of someone who knows something about APHA registry, I have a 2012 AQHA (both parents AQHA) mare with some white on her lower lip, small belly spot and also roaning throughout her body, above tail and white/cream in her tail. Not sure what qualifies for registry. I just purchased this mare and the previous owner said I should look into double registering her but I’m not sure if this would qualify.

White marks are subject to having the corresponding pink skin. The mark under the lip would count toward a white mark. I don't recall the size requirements but the bottom lip counts as location. You would want to look up their registration requirements as the rules have changed and there are even now new rules for solid paints that allows some to cross into the full paint registry.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

RG-070. Color Requirements

A horse meeting bloodline requirements outlined in Rule RG-015. must have a definite “natural Paint marking”. From their website:

The term “natural Paint marking” shall mean a predominant hair coat color with at least one contrasting area of solid white hair of the required size with some underlying unpigmented skin present on the horse at the time of its birth. This solid white area must be in the prescribed zone depicted in the illustration below. In the event the horse has a predominantly white hair coat, the term “natural Paint marking” shall mean at least one contrasting area of the required size of colored hair with some underlying pigmented skin present on the horse at the time of its birth.

To qualify for the Regular Registry by coat markings, the white marking must:

Be 2″ or more in size of solid (unbroken) white hair
Have some underlying unpigmented skin
Be located in the qualifying area (see diagram—basically above the center of the knees or hocks, or behind an imaginary line from the base of the ear to the outside corner of the eye to the corner of the mouth and under the chin)
Non-qualifying areas include but are not limited to the following locations:

Lips of vulva
Shaft of penis
Inner sheath not visible without physical manipulation of the area
Some solid horses might qualify for the Regular Registry based on DNA — see the rulebook for details (RG-070.E. and RG-070.F.).


RG-015. Bloodline Requirement
A. As of January 1, 1980, all horses for which applications of registration are
submitted must have both sire and dam registered in the APHA, APQHA,
APSHA, the American Quarter Horse Association, the Jockey Club or any
international Thoroughbred Registry recognized by the Jockey Club.
B. AQHA Appendix and AQHA numbered stallions and mares shall have the
same status for registration of Paint foals.
